Through the Windows Update settings in Windows 10, you may set your computer to shut down after installing updates. Here is how to go about it:
Window Update Settings open
- On your keyboard, press Win + I to launch the Settings app.
- Simply select “Update & Security.”
Windows Update Options configuration
- Click “Windows Update” in the left sidebar of the “Update & Security” options.
- Simply select “Advanced options.”
Establishing Automatic Restart:
- The “Choose when updates are installed” option may be found in the “Advanced options” section.
You can select one of the following choices in this section:
“Automatic (recommended)”: Using this setting will restart and install software on your computer while you aren’t using it.
You will be prompted to plan a restart for updates when you select the “Notify to schedule restart” option.
With the “Pick a time” option, you can designate a precise time for restarts and upgrades.
“Restart now” causes your computer to restart right away so that updates can be installed.
Schedule Active Hours:
Additionally, “Active hours” that Windows won’t automatically restart for updates can be configured. If you don’t want updates to interfere with your work or other activities, this is helpful.
Optional additional power options include:
You can configure a power plan to shut down the system after a predetermined amount of inactivity if you want to make sure that your PC is completely shut down after updates are installed.
By pressing Win + X, choose “Power Options.”
Your active electricity plan’s “Change plan settings” link should appear.
Simply select “Change advanced power settings.”
You can change the “On battery” and “Plugged in” settings to “Shut down” under “Shutdown.”
